It cannot see anything except, in a grotesque shape. a To its distorted vision:virtues take the form of vices, and heroic qualities are nothing but objects of sarcasm and ridicule. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Herald takes a eitiohssview f the qu'estions before thecoun "i try, and one which, in fact, people endowed with ordinary directness of intelleetual vision are utterly incapable of appreciating. The manner in which the constitutional amend met is pressed on the consideration of the foiatem feoesiiefa dxs a z'nixahmple of ort meaning. The radical papers make no con Ly cealment of the purposes with which they wage war on the South Bitter and vindictive as theymay be, they are yet serious in their aims and earnest in their objects. But the Herald seems hinopablb ofedderstanding de sis which are entertained on the one side, othe principles by which the other side is Foded . ery exzpression of conscien tious duty it has only the sneer of Mephis Stopheles. Take the following as an illustra tin :i The section of the constitutional amendmltent before the-States which proposes, till absolved by 6a two-thirds vote of Congress, to debar from all ,, tf oýoes hereafter al thai class of men who v olatelreoths ts sipport the Constitutions as ofiocers in the service of the United States, civil, 1 ladtic or military, by engaging in the late re Sbell.e., is considered in. theoultha severe exsoa tion. It has been suggested to ns, however, that in thus clearing of all the old politicians of the :South that brought on and managed the rebel i ionh.,-suclo the Masons and Hunters and Wises, f Virghnia tthe r etts; Hsghtoes a.d QaQttle bums, of South Carolina; the Stephenses, Toombses and Cobbs, of Georgia; the DSvises and Thompsons, of tiissisispi; the Bejaulins, Sonldluond Slidells, of Louisiana, and so. on to the Send o the chapter--the Southern States will be relieved of an immense lot of useles robbish, and et' vastly to their advantage for a new start i tihe Union. Ths is a good idea It is the very thing which the Southern States ought to desire above Sall other things--a release from all that batch of f pestilential old politicians that plunged the South intois the abyss 'f this late disastrous rebellion. Bnt not only will the people and the States con i cerned be relieved by this amendment of these oIld mischlef-makers; they will he free to bring t in the work of Soethern political and social re Scosetertion a new set of ,aoders from their youno sad vl~orousmen, controlled by the new isdeas Sthy will ave'learned from the war--ideas" eon sistent with and adapted to the new order of o thigs This is the onsy reconstruction, after all, whih witll put the South at one0 on the high road to prosperity, wealth and power. This is 'what the eerald 'calls "clearing in ay the old political rubbih of the South." But we assure the Herald that we have use yet for such "rubbish." We need all the efforts, the'energy; and the hope which are to d liefound-among our young men-hbut we need also the intelligence- and the experience of Sthose persons at'hom the Herald levels its Salevolent, but harmless sarcasms.

The reported offer of MIr. A. T. Stewart to to give a million dollars for the purpose of con ot structing suitable residences for the deserving e. Ipoor of New York, has had the effect of di m~ recting public attention to this subject, and ut of eliciting discussion as to the best means of ,ot providing house room for the laboring popu a lation. The question presses almost as closely m- on us as on the people of New York, and the ed general conclusions which are found to be ap on plioable there, will likewise be found to be he applicable here. id- At present, the dissoesion has taken the he form of an argument as to the best style of or houses for the purpose"in view-whether the n. model tetement house, as it is called, or the ey separate cottage system, is the best method. ve But this is getting. in advance of ir the main point. Before deciding on he the kind of houses to be built, it is neces le- sary' to prove that any particular method, e, apart from the ordinary voluntary method, is under which the supply of houses is sup a- posed to be regulated by the demand for is- house room, is practicable or desirable. It ma- must be evident that any proposition, in tended to cover this ground, must be general t in its character. We are not called upon to b applaud a particular act of benevolence, on ho the part of one person, which act, however as munificent it may be, can have only an appre e ciable effect on the permanent comfort of the Le- great massof the community. What we wish e to arrive-at is, after all, not whether or not l. Mr. Stewart is a liberal man, but whether the es, manner in which Mr. Stewart's money, or s-anybody else's money is applied, is consis ee tent with the general laws of society s, and political economy. If it is not be consistent with those laws, his experiment od will, in the end, be a failure. Against the temporary benefit which it may confer, must ve be set off the loss which a false system in of variably eliteils, and which, ultimately, pro b duces more inconvenience than had originally n- been obviated. In other words, if a system 0e of house building can be devised which, -e whilst it will afford at least approximate cox !c fort and health to the people, will, at the same . time, pay an interest on the investment equal, sf or nearly equal, to the ordinary profits on oi money, our problem would approach solu tion. We may depend on it that methods ng which do not pay will prove only temporary, o." and, in the long run, deleterious expedients. ise They are attempts to divert the flow of the laws he of political economy from their natural chan to nee, and any such attempts only aggravate the ed evils which they are intended to cure. of What we really want is that capitalists its should take hold of this question and apply he their funds to the construction of houses, not is- as a donation, or a benefaction simply, but in ser some rational manner which affords at least a he prospect of a fair return for the money in ip. vested. Those who accomplish' this object it will be entitled to far more of our gratitude en than any Stewart, with his tempting gift of a ad million dollars for purposes which can never g_ be realized. We do not say this to depreciate ti- Mr. Stewart's generosity or his sagacity; for it a is stated that he desires to show, as Alderman n- Watereow has shown in London, that a neat, to well-ventilated, commodious tenement house, er with g9gd sanitary provisions and ordinary n- conveniences, can be constructed and rented in at from seven to ten per cent. net profit. oe This, however, is a matter of detail. It is does not follow that because tenement houses at are desirable in London or New York, they l. are likewise desirable in New Orleans. The at great difference in climate might require a li. difference in the style of dwelling to be it, adopted. . The separate cottage system would, th perhaps, be more suitable for New Orleans, ay than tenement houses. But 'whatever style It may be adopted the indispensable condition Id of proft should be taken into primary con sideration. It is profit and profit alone that of secures the permanency of any enterprise in me 'tended to be general in its effects on society. , If capitalists 'here, or elsewhere, would try - the experiment for New Orleans on this basis, we are satisfied that they would be successful. COOLIE LABOR. The difficulties encountered 'in regulating thepresent system of free labor, have induced many td look to some new source of supply as a means of renovating the prosperity of thecountry. Thie'slock of war has certainly introduced great'confusion in the previously established system, and the attempts which thus far have been made to regulate labor in such away that industry should prosper, have been,attended with very indifferent success. SThQlhsgds tiops established by the laws of the different Southera States, though generally Sased upo. ~'equifabble principles, hade` not always met the requirements of the situation; and the eccentrfifeitesof the freedmen's bureau have often intrdueed irreinediable confusion in everything with ~which it intermeddled. Co'ngress, too insistedin'various ways ininter fering with cdehitionis hich could more easily have been iettled wiithout its interventiop. The conefuiof of-rights under the so-called oivil rights bill is so great that 'an indisposi ion is manifested by many to have any rela tiinos, which can be avoid , 'with the eman cipated negro, test the conineetion with him might unexpectedly involve his empldyer in some ndvel litigatibn before a tribunal hith erto.unleaown in the country. The little S" harmless pleasantries" too, in which the militgry oeeasiohally indulge for their own amusement; or for the annoyance of other people, beget a wish on the part of citizens to diminish as far as practicable the points of eontactbetween them, so that the dangers of collision with those hilarious gentlemen may be as infrequent as possible. These various considerations, taken in' con nection with the fact that the system of policy inculcated by the radicals seems designed to teach the freedmen that it is not their labor, but their votes, which are to add to the prosperity of the country, have induced many persons to look forward to securing another class of laborers who will be willing to work in lfillment of their contracts with out troubling themselves and disturbing others by constant attempts at revolutionizing the system of government wLich has so long prevailed. The coolie, it is expected by these persons, is to supply the wants of labor now so seriously felt throughout the Souttern States. "Look before you leap," is a homely adage, but embodies much wisdom. Our situation is srrrounded by many unpleasant difficulties, and it is naturnl and proper that we should attempt to avoid them or to remove them. Butif we insist upou wandering in the dark we may encounter 'itfalls more da(ngeroui than those which already environ our path. We think the expedient which is proposed to engraft upon our already disorganized o society this system of coolie labor A is one of these dangers. We have at on more than one occasion, warned our sn readers against too hastily embracing a system rel which has so little to commend itself to public hi: Sapprobation. The system of slavery was first co introduced in the New World by an ill-directed mn ly effort of philanthropy. To relieve the suffer- sit e ings of the enslaved Indian, Las Casas suc ceeded in importing the African slave into the West Indies. New England was not slow to avail herself of the advantages offered by the a traffic and was one of the principal agents in of fixing the system upon Southern institutions. st e The negro was enslaved for the supposed pe e benefit of the Indian, It is now proposed of to introduce a new form of slavery for the Chinese in order to elevate the negro. We C , consider the proposition wrong in itself, and for that reason oppose it. It may be said that the coolie freely enters into the contract, and therefore that it cannot be or wrong to enforce it against him. But a con tract made under false inducements cannot 1 t sanctify the wrong done to the coolie. And te a even if it could, the effect upon our own civ al ilization would prove so deleterious that we feel compelled to oppose the introduction of a these people amongst us. The .experience of cr our neighbors in the West Indies does not, in our opinion, justify us in following their e example. A few land-holders may derive ;h temporary benefit from the employment of ot this labor, but it will be at the expense of the se general good, and will prove ultimately detri oc mental to themselves; for no one can receive permanent benefit from a system which will To y introduce such a new disturbing element t amongst those which already sufficiently agi it tate the country. We want no mongrel races e amongst us. It is to our interest to have a at homogeneous population, whose sympathies a- and interests will be common, and not an - tagonistic. In this way only can we expect Sto maintain peace at home and command re m spect abroad. We should not envy the chronic agitations which afflict our neighbors, where sa the mongrel races can fir upon no principle a of government, and where morals are cor- mt 1s, rupted with the deterioration of public virtue. n The ill effects following the introduction of this system are already perceptible on the ds Pacific coast, and we camnnot better enforce , our views on this subject then by the follow s ing extract from the San Francisco Monitor : We were informed, a month or so ago, that a vs person had arrived in this city from New Orleans, to oi n- make arrangements for the transfer of three e hundred Chinamen, to work on Southern planta tions, and as all distinctions of race sand color are abolished by the civil rights bill, so far as Con ts gress can do so, we imagine the day is not far dis tant when copper-colored Pagan labor will be ly substituted for the labor of the white man in all at the Atlantic States. S Theseeoolies, for such they are, are a demoral iziag blight to any community in which they are a domiciled. They are active and ingeonioas, it is a true, good copyists, quick of comprehension, and useful drudges; but theyare filthy. thiesish, and wc t infamously vile. They are brought to this city as o Is merchandise, to be parceled out on the laborme market with no other condition than the supply of the animal wants and their return home, living or or dead, at the end of the time contracted for. Very to few of them returnnalive, but continue to work on their own account after the expiration of their te it term of service, and after death their bodies are On n picked np and transferred to the "Flowery King p dor" annually. There are several companies trading under real - 0, or assumed names engaged in their import and y exportto andfrom this city. The Chinese popu lation of Californiamay be set down at 75,000; ibut it may not become us now to present any As t. details of the demoralizng influence of so large a t heathen population on aState which casts a little over 100,000 votes, or abont 15,000 votes less than ws were castin 185t. The reduction of 15,000 votes in ten years, and ias new Sltate which offers snprece- VI dent inducements, affords indubitable proof that se the IMogolias, like the African race, is repulsive a to the Caucasian, and we know that the vast ma e ority of whites on this coast, of all conditions of efife, are desirous to return "home" ssooa as 14 "t" S One night, last week, as the passenger train from Nashville for Louisville stopped at Bow ling Green, the conductor shouted " twenty t minutes for supper," and about thirty passen gers rushed into the dining room. Among the 'hungry thirty " were some ladies, a few of whom left their children on board the train. While the passengers were eating, the train went off and left them. Husbands were separated from wives, wives from children, children from servants, and the feelings of those who were left behind can better be imagined than described. Some of them came up on the freight train. A Memphis police detective committed sui cide on the 13th inst.
